To Old Upper Thomson Rd, 25 km. Americans say: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Japanese say: use your opponents' force against them. Well, my fat tyres are heavy, have greater rolling friction and slow me down. But it also means I get a more intense workout in a shorter time. So, opposites can have some attraction; good can come out of bad. And today, I meet the man who'd conned me (see 9 Apr entry). He denies knowing me, though he looks, talks and walks the same. Oh, he's such a cool conman. And a cheap cheat, selling his soul for a few bucks. Well, it's cheap tuition fee for me; for a few bucks, I'm now on guard against bigger conmen.
